Warning: This is an independent addition to Life and Other Near-Death Experiences, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. INTROThe first couple chapters of this novel might as well have been called "Libby Ross and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day." Within a matter of hours, Libby learns that she has aggressive cancer and that her beloved husband Tom is gay. Having lost her own mother to cancer at the age of ten, Libby is well acquainted with the realities of such a diagnosis. Facing three to six months of loneliness and pain followed by death, she goes a little off the rails. Unable to bear the thought of breaking the news to her twin brother Paul, her father or her now estranged husband, and unwilling to subject herself to the horrors of chemotherapy Libby packs her bags and jet sets off to the remote island town of Vieques in Puerto Rico. She plans to spend her time there sealed away from the world, wrapping her head around her impending doom and enjoying life's little pleasures while she still has the time. Except that it's true what they say about best laid plans and life has plenty more surprises in store for Libby. A new adventure begins when she meets Shiloh, an enigmatic pilot who pays no attention to the walls Libby tries to put up around herself. As their relationship develops, Libby is forced to take a step back and reconsider the snap decisions she has made about her sickness, and the effects those decisions will have on the people she loves - and who love her. Life and Other Near Death Experiences is a quick read that nonetheless manages to pack an emotional punch. As a protagonist, Libby is occasionally insufferable and sometimes even downright cruel to those around her, but that's what makes the book so refreshingly honest. As stated on the very first page, this isn't Eat, Pray, Love. Instead it's a story of how much life can suck sometimes and what people do to deal with that.Available on PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device. (c) 2015 All Rights Reserved

What happens to consciousness during the act of dying? The most compelling answers come from people who almost die and later recall events that occurred while lifesaving resuscitation, emergency care, or surgery was performed. These events are now called near-death experiences (NDEs). As medical and surgical skills improve, innovative procedures can bring back patients who have traveled farther on the path to death than at any other time in history. Physicians and healthcare professionals must learn how to appropriately treat patients who report an NDE. It is estimated that more than 10 million people in the United States have experienced an NDE. Hagan and the contributors to this volume engage in evidence-based research on near-death experiences and include physicians who themselves have undergone a near-death experience. This book establishes a new paradigm for NDEs.
